This coming holiday May 1st at 1.10 in the afternoon, join Phil Whelan, our Studio 1 audience, and the stunning Wells Cathedral School Jazz Combo, under the direction of Ed Leaker. Wells is one of the UK's top specialist music schools, and they've just completed week long Hong Kong tour, visiting most of our favourite local jazz venues. The highlight was a visit to RTHK last Sunday to perform and record in front of a great audience. Hear some classic 1950s and 60s "straight ahead" numbers, and compositions by members of this super talented 8 piece outfit. For this studio recording they were joined by world class Australian sax player Blaine Whittaker on Baritone. This was a really special event and we're so happy to be able to share it with you next Monday lunchtime at 1.10, here on Radio 3.
